The holiday season is here! If you want to kill it at the family Christmas party, impress the mother-in-law,  or just shine like the star on the top of the tree -- then you don't need to look far. PinkBlush has you covered. 

PinkBlush is known for their cute floral dresses for pregnant woman, but their brand goes so far beyond that. The gorgeous pieces they create continue to astound me! And their selection this holiday season will have you begging Santa for more! 

I got three pieces from PinkBlush. I'm going to start with the adorable overalls!

PinkBlush has great range ! They got fancy options for a big event, or for work. They also have casual clothing -- and these Blue Distressed Denim Front Pocket Overalls are a must-have! They fit so well, look so great on! They're perfect for lounging around the house, but you can easily wear these out to a music fest or brunch with the girls! So easy to slip on -- and per usual -- comfy & cute!

Velvet is all the rage right now! The Navy Blue Crushed Velvet Cold Shoulder Dress is perfect for the holiday work party -- and  then save it for later for a fun date or a night out with the ladies! It's also incredibly comfortable (as you can see, I wore it to work for a live report and then hopped on a plane). Great addition for the closet, such a trendy and fun dress!

And, man, I love those two pieces -- but I'm saving the best for last. Prepare to SLEIGH ALL DAY in the Black Lace Overlay Cutout Bell Sleeve Dress (sleigh -- slay -- get it... ho ho ho!) 

I wore this to a friend's Christmas Party. The compliments were endless and I just felt fabulous. The detail in the front is exquisite. You can't see it in these photos, but it's also intricate and beautiful in the back. And bell sleeves and lace are hot, hot, hot right now!

For roughly 60 bucks -- this is a steal. It's well made and looks absolutely stunning on. Easily my favorite outfit from PinkBlush ever!!!

#isparklewhen I wear Long Tall Sally

and remember... @longtallsallyclothing

A post shared by Jacki Jing (@jackijing) on

When it comes to clothes, it can be tough being a tall lady! I'm not 5'8" -- not 5'10" -- not 6'0" -- I am 6'2" with a 37.5 inch inseam! I am still traumatized by pants shopping in my teens. I vividly remember looking in the mirror in high school, wanting to cry, when the "cool" jeans came up above my ankle.

I'm 30 now and I've figured out how to work around the fashion difficulties when it comes to #tallgirl shopping. 

I wear a lot of dresses. I've gotten used to my trousers looking like boat pants.

But it's always been disheartening, not being able to get chic, stylish clothing because my legs and arms are too long, and my feet are too big (size 11).

What about #tallgirl shops you ask? Well, when I was kid, the "Big & Tall" stores (as my father horrifically called them) had the worst selection. They were mom clothes. Not remotely fun or flashy. So for years, I just accepted the droll or wore ill-fitting outfits  ( I know... tragic). 

In 2008, Long Tall Sally started selling in North America. But I didn't hear about them until a few years later (of course, from some fellow volleyball players who share my clothing woes). I immediately thought: 'Oh boy, some more ugly mom clothes -- I am sure."

I didn't check them out for awhile, but then after another frustrating day at the dressing room, filled with ill-fitting attire and tears -- I decided to look at Long Tall Sally's website!

LTS is Tall Girl Heaven. Their clothes have style. They have traditional, classic options (which are always great, don't discount fashion basics and fundamentals like a good pair of work slacks and a little black dress).

They also have on-trend pieces with pizazz (absolutely loved my latest outfit, below, long pink winter jacket, merlot-colored crushed velvet dress with rose gold velvet ankle boots -- I mean, c'mon -- LOVE!!!!!) 

“We don’t just sell clothes for tall women. We champion tall women.
Everything we do is dedicated to making tall women look - and feel - fabulous.”

— Long Tall Sally

Every time I get a LTS package, I am elated! On Cloud 9! It's a tall lady's fashion dream. You truly do not understand the excitement you feel when you're a tall woman, and you slip on a jacket and it's not inches above your wrist! The shock you feel when the end of your pants actually touches the ground. The joy that overwhelms you when you slip on those adorable shoes and your toes aren't all mashed up in the front. 

Long Tall Sally provides me an overabundance of happiness!!! My recent outfits were off the chain!!!

As long as you love me so 💙 Let it ❄️ Let it 🌨 Let it ❄️ @longtallsallyclothing

Karl Lagersfield Paris Textured Faux Leather Jacket 

I just felt like a rock star in this jacket. I am pretty slim, but my jackets are never form-fitting. But this jacket just slides on to you and accentuates all the right areas. Felt like a total bad B in this.

Longline Lace Shirt

This piece is the perfect combination of classy and sassy. You can wear it to work with a black tank top underneath or be a little more provocative and wear a black bra or crop top. Both looks were fabulous. I wore it professionally on-air with the tank and then went out in it it as well!

Metallic Slim Leg Jean

These are high-waisted, following the latest trend. I wore it with that longer lace shirt, but man it looks great with shirts tucked in to it or a fun, airy crop top. The color of these are just chic. You need this in your closet. 

LTS Neema Stretch Back Leather Boot

I mean. These boots though....... The knee high look is so in. These boots are traditional and trendy.  I rock them constantly and get so many compliments.

Curatd. X LTS Single Button Maxi Coat

This jacket is just too much fun. Long and pink. I just feel fabulous whenever I wear it. It's lighter weight wool, so perfect for fall or a cool day in winter. Another piece that can come come off casual or classy, depending on what you pair with it!

LTS Laura Velvet Ankle Boot

These shoes are insane. Just gorgeous. Fit great, material is nice. Easily my favorite shoes I own. You will turn heads in these. Period. 

Velvet Back Tie Bodycon Dress

I don't need to tell you this. Velvet is so in right now. Great for a sexy winter date night or if you want to wow the family during the holidays. Comfy and fits great. 

We NEVER just add inches. We construct each and every garment
positioning hips, hems, pockets and plackets exactly where they should be.

all i want... @longtallsallyclothing Curatd. X LTS Lace Bodice Jumpsuit

A post shared by Jacki Jing (@jackijing) on

Curatd. X LTS Lace Bodice Jumpsuit 

Do not freak out when you see this. Just buy it. I know it's a long sleeve, wide-leg jump suit and just seems like a risky buy. Girl -- just get it!
This is my favorite outfit from LTS & that's saying so much, because I love all the outfits I got!

This jumpsuit just flatters every part of you. The airiness of it makes you look whimsical and willowy -- and it just feels so good to have the arms and legs of it fit you to a T! 

At first, I was like "OMG -- but how many wears will I get out of this?" When you see how well this looks on, you'll be like I don't care if it's a flashier piece, I am going to wear this as much as I can. 

Instead of wearing a dress to a wedding, wear this.

Baby shower, wear this.

Date... put this on.

Concert, this is your choice... You will love this jumpsuit -- best part, it's SO COMFY!

Suede Biker Jacket

This jacket is just the coolest. Again, fits like a glove and the suede is so soft and beautiful. It's edgy, but not over the top at all. This is a jacket you have to have in your closet. You just get instant cool points when sporting this incredible piece. 

Ombre Sparkle Sweater

This is fun for the holidays. Not too ostenatious and comfy. Perfect for Christmas morning or a chill NYE party. 

Faux Leather Skinny Trouser Jean

Another sick pair of pants from LTS! Fit amazing, stylish, sleek. (Faux) leather pants are all the rage -- hop on this train! 

LTS Sorley Stud Suede Ankle Boot

These boots are BEAUTIFUL. The sparkly studs, the chunky heel. I mean these have fashionista written all over them. They fit and look fantastic!

We dress the tall women of the world
— Long Tall Sally

Tall girls, rejoice! Finally, we have cute, chic, classy clothing options!!

 Thank you Long Tall Sally, for giving me confidence again.

When I am in your clothes, I can walk with my head held high. I am no longer paranoid about pants creeping up my calves or pulling my jacket sleeves down, as they wriggle up almost to my elbow. 

My clothes -- just fit. It makes me finally feel like myself. Whole. 

Y'all get me and I am so happy I found you, Long Tall Sally! You got a customer for life <3 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh yes, Obagi!

I recently got my Obagi kit from the Sculpting Center of New Orleans and the results are remarkable. It's an incredible skincare regimen that battles aging on various levels, from skin discoloration to wrinkles to saggy skin!

Since I work on TV, I have tried out so many beauty products, I don't even know where to start. But it's remarkable to me how much money I have spent -- and how often the products -- just don't work.

Well, you won't get that with Obagi. This anti-aging routine is powerful. Skin discoloration on my upper lip (had a little browning) disappeared. My skin just felt fresh and clear after using it! I used to get a few zits a month. Since I started using Obagi three months ago, I barely break out. It's incredible how clear my skin is!

 

As I said though, this stuff is potent -- so make sure you moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The Obagi kit will accommodate. It comes with a special moisturizer (and a sunscreen if you're heading outdoors). But I threw on some extra coconut oil or Aquaphor on at night to really make sure my skin was hydrated with the Obagi concoctions! 

I am impressed with what I am seeing so far, but again,  this stuff is strong ! Use smaller amounts in the beginning and then you can up your usage if necessary. Depending on your skin type, you may want to use every other day to or a couple times a week. But prepare for a revitalization and transformation of your skin! If you're interested in an Obagi kit or their products, contact Elizabeth at Sculpting Center of New Orleans.

Jane Iredale, you make me feel like a natural woman

The Circle\Delete®Concealer is exceptional. Not only does it smell wonderful (it's like something from a garden -- and if you investigate more, you'll learn that Jane Iredale loves experimenting with botany), but it comes with two colors, mine was a redder color and a beige color. You can apply with a brush or your finger... start with the darker color then follow it up with the lighter color. Waking up at 3 AM every morning, this product has been an absolute miracle worker. It would be my favorite product from the line... but...

The PurePressed® Eye Shadow and PurePressed® Blush blew me away the most!!! I chose Bone, Oyster (lighter) Double Espresso & Dusk (darker) for eye shadow, and Mystique & Dubonnet for blush, but so many great colors, such amazing variety again! I have tried luxurious to the cheapest of the cheap -- always trying to find the right colors that go on well with eye shadows and blushes! My jaw literally dropped when I applied the Jane Iredale blush and eye shadow. They went on so well, using a very small amount of the product. I usually have to grind my brush into the blush or eye shadow container, but I dabbed my brushes to get an idea of how well it went on when I used the Jane Iredale products -- and my goodness. It's so pigmented. It's amazing! These will go a long way!! I am absolutely in love with them. In the provided selfies I have used the following:..

Another fun product from the company: the Mystikol® Powdered Eyeliner! I don't know about you, but I have so much trouble getting that eyeliner just right with gel, pencil, liquid -- trying this option was super fun and it's MUCH easier to apply. Another go to in the future!

Usually I am the wild colors girl when it comes to make up -- you'll see me wearing bright blue lipstick with rainbow-colored eye shadow, but Jane Iredale's products made me fall back in love with an all-natural look. Their colors are earthy -- bright, but soft colors, you'd find in a flowery meadow while picking berries. Rich browns and reds that are classy, not flashy. 

Embedded in the DNA is the belief that makeup is at its best when it doesn’t try to make a woman conform to the latest fashion trends, but embraces her natural beauty and allows her personality to shine.
— Jane Iredale

With Jane Iredale make up -- I didn't feel like I had to cover up all the flaws on my face and hide my insecurities. I felt like I was embracing my being, accentuating what the Good Lord gave me! I am really happy I gave the makeup line a try, even if you're a experimental and risque #mua, you'll find yourself falling in love with this secret garden of miraculous make up.

There's countless makeup options out there. Cheap ones, expensive ones -- but how many are actually any good? That apply well, provide significant coverage, while still allowing your skin to feel natural and fresh?

I mean -- let's be real -- that's incredibly hard to come by, but Jane Iredale has created products that are truly a makeup lover's dream!

The face lotions (BB creams, primer, etc), foundations and powder all feel great on the skin. I don't feel like my face is suffocating, they all leave you feeling and looking fresh! 

How about a makeup that’s good for the skin?
— Jane Iredale

The Liquids Minerals A Foundation offers a variety of colors so you can find a perfect match for your skin color!  Forget about cake-face, this foundation is light-weight, leaving your skin looking natural, vibrant! I felt like I was glowing!!

If you're on the go, the Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream is  a Godsend. So easy to apply and as the website touts it "covers blemishes, minimizes the appearance of pores, disguises wrinkles and smoothes and brightens skin."

I usually stay away from powdered anything. Powders sink right into the wrinkles (ugh, hate that)! But the PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation went on so nicely. I have oily skin too -- so a powder foundation that doesn't expose every crinkle or crevice and covers up the shine -- I am all in!

The Smooth Affair® Facial Primer & Brightener also moisturizes and allows that make up to stay on well, another great product that will help you appear more youthful, minimizing fine lines.

FOR THE IRREVERENT AND SLIGHTLY JADED.

Eyebobs: Handmade Italian frames with sick designs and patterns, starting at $199, with a virtual try-on tool, that you can order to your doorstep within days!!!!

I mean, really... Need I say more?

Look out eyes, we’re coming for you!

— Eyebobs

The popular glasses company started off only making reading glasses, but Hallelujah! Now, they're  making prescription frames!

If you wear glasses, like me, finding an affordable, QUALITY, fun pair ain't easy!

Eyebobs has classic looks, but some wild frames too (which I love).

There’s an eyebobs frame to suit every mood, from cool and classic to edgy and avant garde. Change your glasses and change everything. Because eyewear should make a statement; yours requires an exclamation point! (Eyebobs) 

I walk into glasses stores and, oftentimes, their selection's just dull and traditional. If you see an idiosyncratic pair, they're usually pretty pricey.

There's retailers online that I've ordered from in the past and they're cheap -- but you get what you pay for. The fit isn't great, the hinges are loose after a few weeks, there's rusting, the list of issues goes on and on! Plus, it's hard to really picture how they'll actually look on you...

Well here's Eyebobs to the rescue! They have a ton of variety, and they now have this incredible, easy-to-use virtual try-on tool, which shows you how the frames will look on you! I had so much fun with this and felt really confident about the glasses I picked after messing around with the tool!

Let everyone else look like everyone else.
— Eyebobs

While you'll pay more for Eyebobs, then Zenni or Warby Parker -- the quality is there. These are nice frames and they're fun! The Meeooww glasses I got don't look or feel cheap. They're sharp and sleek. The material feels sturdy. The best part, they look fabulous!

If you need to update your look, there’s no time like right meow! Get your paws on some Eyebobs!

Fun football gear for fans of any team!

Who Dat Nation! Wait till you see the fun Saints gear that Lids has! The list is endless! From tanks and tees -- from beanies to caps -- from sporty shorts to wild pants -- they have you covered. I got some great black and gold gear, as you can see...

But check out this incredible custom made hat! Representing my station WGNO and of course... we got my name on it: JING! 

They really have something for every fan. Whether you're ostentatious and out there, or conservative and more subdued. I can't wait to wear and flaunt my new Lids stuff! 

Charlotte Tilbury: 'Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world.'

When you work in TV, you use make up from so many different companies that they all really start to blend together. But when I got my Charlotte Tilbury package, I truly was blown away. 

Her aptly titled Magic Foundation works wonders. It didn't feel like cake face or pasty and thick, but it provided significant coverage and my skin just looked smooth and soft.  It's perfect for on-air. We need to look flawless, but you want to feel like your skin can actually breathe!

This foundation also touts it's ability to "treat and transform your skin, especially if you struggle with melasma, acne, rosacea."  My face looked like porcelain, it covered up blemishes and skin discoloration very well. Definitely my favorite Charlotte Tilbury product.

Loving this hel's bells lipstick 💋 @ctilburymakeup

“I believe that every woman wants to feel beautiful, powerful and sexy and that makeup is a great way to achieve this. Makeup gives you INSTANT CONFIDENCE. It’s about feeling as fabulous on the outside as you do on the inside.” - Charlotte Tilbury

If you want a foundation that's lighter that still provides full coverage, check out her Light Wonder foundation. The best part about this foundation though, is that it has anti-aging benefits, minimizes your pores and is very hydrating.

I use this one when I am not on air, it's very moisturizing and comfortable. Another great product. I like Light Wonder when I want a more casual look, I use Magic Foundation when I want to look more done up.

Charlotte Tilbury's lipstick collection is out of this world. She has so many incredible colors, from matte to gloss. I received the Hel's Bells "deep berry matte lipstick." I mean -- the color is to die for. It goes with so many outfits. I can make it look sexy and chic or fun and playful!

You can also alter the looks of the lipsticks by matching them with their lip glosses.  They have some deep colors if you like a darker, sexier, smooth look --  and also lighter colors if you just want a shimmer or sparkle! I was a big fan of Blondie, which I have used with light pinks and dark pinks -- it gives my lips a gold, glimmer. 

This rich, magical magenta-mulberry is inspired by the quintessentially British style of Helena Bonham-Carter, completing her dreamy-gothic, eclectic look.

I also really liked Charlotte Tilbury's  Unisex Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer (I used it in the photo above). The description calls it "summer-in-a-bottle all year round" that will "bring your tired skin to life."  It reminded me of a BB Cream -- light, comfortable coverage. Would also be great for guys -- it's not cakey or powdery like make up at all -- just a nice, fresh cover up to even out your skin tone and give you a nice glow! If I am not in the mood to wear make up and I am doing something in the evening or night, I am going straight for this moisturizer.

My favorite part about this brand though is that it provides make up for all types of women. They have photos of women from various backgrounds in their foundation, lipstick, blush -- whatever -- so you can really picture how it would look on you. I am half-Asian, so ordering make up online can be really scary -- I feel like I never know what I am going to get! But I looked at some of the photos of girls who looked similar to me and I got a great idea of what would be a good fit.

This make up line is high-quality and fun. It's also going beyond coverage, thinking about the health of your skin, providing anti-aging and acne-fighting options.

It's more expensive, without question, but after using it, I would definitely say 100% worth it. 

Also another awesome company, that's pushing confidence and self-love. So now -- I am ready to conquer the world ;)

Blue in Pinkblush

You could easily wear this on a picnic, a walk around the park -- just throw on some sandals. Or you could wear it to work, it can definitely be dressed up with some nice jewelry and heels. I wore it to the museum for a date and I couldn't have felt prettier!
